Cruel Twist of Fate: Probable Death of Football (Soccer) Star Emiliano Sala in Airplane Crash

Emiliano Sala, the Argentinian footballer who signed for Cardiff City on Saturday, was on a private plane that disappeared near the Channel Islands on Monday evening, prompting an extensive search and rescue operation that was suspended at 5pm on Tuesday, with Guernsey police admitting that the chances of survival are “slim”...

The news that the plane had gone missing with Sala on board was greeted with a sense of despair and dismay by staff, players and supporters at Cardiff and Nantes. Sala, who joined Cardiff for a club-record £15m fee after scoring 42 goals for Nantes, had been due to train with the Welsh club for the first time on Tuesday morning.

[Because of the cold weather, if not rescued immediately chances of survival are close to none.]

If he hadn't decided to switch for more money and status, he wouldn't have been on this plane and wouldn't be dead [while these sorts of incidents happen all the time the speed of the change from good fortune to very bad fortune struck me.]
